The source of an idea is what makes it true or false. (A Course in Miracles)

There are the ideas that originate from fear (which are false), and then there are the ideas that originate from love (which are true). How so?

Fear is the emotion of ego—the mind’s excuse for insanity. No matter how sharp a fear-based idea may seem, it is ultimately of no value because it rests entirely upon misguided intentions.

The agenda behind fear-based ideas is salvation through external situations and forms. Even in those rare cases when such a goal is manifested, nothing of true or lasting value can originate from this source because nothing conceived in fear can inspire joy or eliminate suffering. No matter how much effort, skill and dedication, fear is ultimately a non-starter.

Love, on the other hand, is the energy of life. The gentle, yet powerful force of love within effortlessly guides us to give and to create that which has true and eternal value. Operate from this source and everything you do is an instant success. Why? Because, in a state of perfect love, you begin by achieving total success within. Now extend perfect love through everything you do and inspire the truth of salvation—that everything we most deeply desire can only come from within.

To operate from the source of love, it is first necessary to undo the mind’s egoic conditioning of this world. This requires meditation and a daily spiritual practice—even something as simple as reading these posts each day with an open heart and mind. This will teach you not to take the voice in the head so seriously.

Suffering and failure is caused by doubting that which is beyond doubt. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
